the maximum healthy number, 12 to 15. they are everywhere. that's not cute either. not only are they eating themselves but they are damaging the woods for other wildlife. you say any killing of the deer is unacceptable but what else are we supposed to do? let's be real. this is all mostly our fault. we enkroeched on their habitat but that doesn't change the fact. that rockville hunt would be something. >> i'm not going to touch this one. okay. let's talk weather. >> we talked about a hurricane but we're watching another storm where we're seeing a tropical wave to become a tropical storm. here's a look at that storm. we're going to go south.

dc area but not everyone will see them. so what can you expect tonight as you are sleeping? nice sleeping weather. partly cloudy. lows will be mid 50s to mid 60s. mostly sunny and cold. great for exercise temperatures. in the afternoon really nice day except for the possibility of mountain showers. area quality is code yellow. here's forecast for thursday. win chester 87. 82, low 80s. here's a look at your 7 day forecast. nice through friday and in your weekend we're looking for warmer in the lower 90s. scattered showers and thunder storms. 30 to 40 percent through monday. we've been saying it's not a complete wash out. most of labor day activities. >> thanks.
